***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
I really enjoyed this first book in this new series. It kept me entertained from the first page and the story flowed at a wonderful pace. It unfolded slowly so you can take in all the details, not just with the locations in the book but with the history of the families involved. You learn that there’s much more to Lilith than you first see; she grows emotionally as well as goes through physical changes. She discovers that her grandfather kept an incredibly huge secret from her and the way Lilith responds to finding out about her heritage was very well done. Instead of having her accept it without question, the author has Lilith struggle with this new secret and information.

Angus and his family is a warm and loving family, and they try to help Lilith as much as they can. Angus is especially drawn to her but can’t wrap his head or heart around the fact that she could be his soul mate. I enjoyed the history behind this family and why they are the keepers of the castle that is rightfully Lilith’s. I also enjoyed watching Angus struggle with his emotions, as well as his desires when it comes to Lilith.

The only drawback for me is towards the end of the book. I had to re-read a few passages in hopes to understand why Lilith seems to want to give herself to every male she meets, which exception of Angus’s brothers. I still don’t quite understand since the book ends on a cliffhanger. I’m hoping that the next book will explain more about what she’s going through and how she deals with all that’s been thrown at her. I’ll definitely be looking forward to the second book’s release.

    Hi Kristin,

    Thank you for the great review! I know Highland Darkness is a little different but that leaves room for uniqueness come book two lol. I promise that when you read book two in “The Donahue McGregor Saga” it will clarify much of the loose ends or questions you have in book one, I just felt if I told to much in book one it won’t leave room for hype come book two haha.

    Again thank you Kristin for reading and reviewing Highland Darkness for me
